TiLite walks the walk

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

Kennewick, Wash. –More than 50 TiLite employees raced custom-built wheelchairs at the Trios Health Tri-Cities Marathon in October. Teams worked in groups of four, each rolling approximately 6.5 miles, according to a local newspaper. According to David Lippes, founder and president of the Pasco-based wheelchair manufacturer, the marathon encapsulated the spirit of a former company rule requiring new employees to spend 24 hours in a wheelchair so they could better understand the challenges wheelchair users face.
